    Welcome to Koiphen!

    I think we had a couple from South Africa here but haven't seen them around for a long time...
    so we're glad you're here!
    Kohaku are pretty common here, but retailers are probably more likely to carry what they
    can sell, so if you got a supplier, let them know what you're looking for and if they get enough
    requests maybe you'll change their minds!

    Good luck!

    Hello Lugs

    I have a good friend from Fish Hook (unsure of spelling) and saying hello and having a chat with other SA has rubbed off on me, so hello, how goes it ?

    There has been a Koi Show in South Africa for years with many well known hobbyists. Kohaku should be rather easy to obtain if you know where to look. You might try a Google search for koi clubs in SA and see what comes up. From there you should be able to contact a member or someone who can lead in the right direction.

    I went to a SA koi show once and loved it! I haven't been able to find out where and when it happens tho. Id love to find out about it so I can get more quality koi. And do anyone know any koi clubs in SA??? I want to learn as much as I can nd hopefully become a pro koi breeder
